The National Gas Company of Trinidad and Tobago Limited (NGC) advises the public of its hot tap works on its 16-inch pipeline, which will be conducted off Connector Road, Charlieville.
This activity involves the following:
- Setting up of the equipment on a split tee fitting
- Attaching a valve
- Attaching the hot tap machine to the valve
Hot tapping is a process used to attach a branch connection to a pipeline without needing to depressurize or disrupt normal operations. It is also used to isolate sections of pipe for maintenance by plugging or stopping the line.
For this activity, the hot tap will be made in one continuous process and will result in the removal of a section of pipe.
